Back in action: Gardening 101

Sorry for the lonnnnnnng break, guys. I have been a little overwhelmed with life lately, with job searching/trying to figure out my next move. Don't you feel that way sometimes?

Anyway, in the meantime hubs and I have been doing some work around the house and since it is getting warmer out, that involves planting! I honestly don't know much about landscaping at all but have recently came across a little tip for outdoor planters. {This very well be something that all of you already know and if so, sorry!}

The concept is called thrillers, fillers and spillers and it is basically just that. Choose a tall plant, normal flowers and a flowing vine and stick them all in one pot for a fool proof planter! I put together a couple on the back patio.









Aren't you glad spring is here?!
